This short essay is a reflective piece attempting to understand the cultural nuances of Indian society, which shapes the consciousness of Indian men and women. While Indian society worships the ‘Devi,’ it does not treat women with the respect they deserve. Also, women sometimes do not deserve that admiration. There is always a conflict between the ideal and the real, and the quest for love and beauty remains an eternal one.
